10 Signs You’re Not Emotionally Strong

Today we’re diving into Part 2 of the 10 Signs You’re Not Emotionally Strong and have recapped all 10 of the signs. If you missed the last Chris LoCurto Show, listen here: https://soundcloud.com/chrislocurto/chris-locurto-show-being-emotionally-strong-part-1

What does it mean to be emotionally strong? Other peoples actions can’t tear you down or affect you or stress you out. You don’t have problems making decisions and you’re content with life. You’re happy and everything in your world is going well. Even if there are struggles or problems, you’re able to get through decision making processes and be strong.

7 Steps to Gain Time and Make Money

I have the blessing of coaching people pretty much every week of my life. And yet, coaching is not what I would have said I’d being doing when I was younger. After years of coaching people, I can say it never gets old!

This past week in one of my sessions I worked with a company who’s owner was struggling with time due to death by a thousand slashes. He has so many disruptions in his day he finds himself at times working until 4AM to solve problems.

As you can imagine, he’s considerably frustrated with time lost both in his business and his personal life. And just like all of us, he has incredibly legit reasons why it’s like this.

Here are just 7 things I shared with him to gain control of his time, which in turn will make the company more money. They’ll do the same for you… 

The Lies We Believe [Podcast]

The lies that we’re told, the lies we tell ourselves, and the lies we believe hold us back.

When you’re told specific lies from people you love, like parents or family, those words hold you back from becoming something greater or believing in yourself or becoming an entrepreneur or fill in the blank.

Why do people we love tell us lies?

Start Communicating Better Today

We’ve spent the week focusing on understanding personality styles. In today’s video lesson, I dig deeper into the importance of communicating in the personality style of the person you’re working with.

This is why I created my in-depth video teaching you how to have high levels of quality communication not only in your organization, but in your daily life with your family, your spouse, your friends, etc.

So here’s what I want you to do: I want you to grab the video and watch it with every team member available. After that, spend some time discussing it.

Solve Your Most Destructive Business Issue

A lack of high-quality communication is the most common and destructive issue I see in almost every business I work with. What causes this great lack of communication? Simple – not understanding how to communicate effectively with each of the different personalities in the organization.

There are several issues that come out of bad communication, including:

  • Lower productivity
  • Gossip
  • Fear
  • Employee turnover
  • Having to redo misunderstood work
  • Lost sales

And those are just a few things that cost your organization a lot of money!

Here’s why good communication is so important:

4 Ways To Help You Let Go

For many people, letting go of hurt, anger, pride, and the past is more difficult than watching Gigli. While others are able to shake bad things off, or look at everything with a fantastically positive attitude, most people struggle to just let go.

And when you see someone who seems to be mad or negative about everything, it’s usually not everything they’re mad about. It’s from something much deeper that’s been buried inside for a long time.

Over a third of the leaders and entrepreneurs that I coach, have connected some of the issues in their business with something that happened in their childhood or relationship, or lack there of, with their father.

When leading people through LifePlan, I spend time working through the big turns in someone’s life, not the big crazy experiences, to discover why they are where they are and why they make the decisions they make. Having this information is the beginning of what I use to lead them to the life they actually want.

In all situations, letting go becomes key. Now, as I say that, there are a ton of friends or spouses out there that always say, “I told you that you needed to do that”. Here is what I can promise you – it doesn’t matter how many times you tell someone what’s wrong with them, or what they need to do, if they don’t ever get to the root of the issue, they’ll never be able to “let go.”

Obviously I can’t go through two days worth of info in this post, but here are some things you can do right now to help you let go:
